Lately Chef Poling has made some news talking about the importance of eating local. Not just as a consumer but as a restaurant. Even explained, “Why I am Still Serving Cantaloupe.” Well, obviously we had to head out to Need More Acres Farm and meet with the man behind the awesome Tomatoes at Home Cafe and Marketplace.

This was one of those times where we just let the camera roll because of Chef Poling and Nathan’s love of food was worth letting them talk and not editing one bit of their conversation. There love of grapes, tomatoes and growing locally sourced produce is amazing:


Want to see the proof of the difference in tomatoes they were talking about?
